English League One side Portsmouth are interested in signing Celtic player Calvin Miller this summer, according to The Daily Record.

The next week is set to be a busy one for the Hoops in terms of incoming and outgoing transfers.

Not only do we need to strengthen the squad in a number of positions, but also clear out a number of players not quite making the grade.

Miller would certainly appear to fall into that category having failed to make an impact in recent years.

The versatile player can play at left-back or in attack on each flank.

Sadly though he’s just been unable to convince Brendan Rodgers or Neil Lennon he is capable enough to get a regular start.

The 21-year-old made his debut for the club back in December 2016. Since then, he’s only managed to make another four appearances.

Last season he spent time on loan at Dundee in the Scottish Premiership before moving to Championship side Ayr United.

With his contract set to expire next year, even moving to Portsmouth on another loan could mean he’s played his last game for the Hoops.

Given his age, there’s no use in him stalling his career at Celtic Park by playing for reserve and development sides.

A move is the best thing for his career.
